Spurs Hammer Tranmere 7-0 To Reach FA Cup Fourth Round

Spurs Hammer Tranmere 7-0 To Reach FA Cup Fourth Round
1/04/2019
English League Two side Tranmere Rovers was no match for Tottenham Hotspur as the English Premier League club powered its way into the fourth round of the FA Cup with a dominating 7-0 win.


Fernando Llorente had a hat-trick while Serge Aurier scored a brace, and Heung-Min Son bagged one goal to go along with his two assists. 18-year-old academy product Oliver Skipp was also excellent, picking up a pair of second-half assists.

It took Spurs 40 minutes to find the scoresheet, but they did as Aurier opened the Spurs account. The Ivorian dispossessed Mark Ellis in the attacking third and let rip an absolutely beautiful 20-yard strike that found the top-right corner. 

With the 1-0 halftime score in the bag, Spurs poured it on in the second half with Llorente taking over, first finding the back of the net just three minutes out of the break.

Heung-Min Son made it 2-0, taking the ball all the way from the halfway line in the 57th minute and bursting down to the by-line on the left before cutting in from a tight angle on a low shot that Tranmere goalkeeper Scott Davieson will want back. 

Aurier grabbed his second in the 55th minute after being played in by great hold-up play from Son, taking it to 3-0.

Llorente’s second came in the 71st minute on a beautiful pass from Skipp down the middle, slicing the two Tranmere center-backs in half and leaving the Spaniard all alone to finish past Davieson. 

He bagged his hat-trick a minute later on a simple tap-in, finishing a cross from Lucas Moura.

Harry Kane added a seventh, coming on for Llorente with 15 minutes to go and scoring seven minutes later.
